三分观心丨佛法智慧的宝剑 The Sharp and Clear Sword of Dharma Wisdom

发表时间:2020-08-04 20:43




《金刚经》中的“金刚”,是一种力量的比喻,无所不摧。摧什么呢?就是来断我们的烦恼障、业障。般若智慧就像金刚一样,能够断我们的业,能够断我们的烦恼。我们要用佛法智慧的宝剑来斩断我们的烦恼跟业的种子,一刀两断。而不是说你拿个石头把草压住,只有真正靠智慧,才能够来解除我们烦恼跟业的障碍,智慧才能够把我们的心转变过来。

The "diamond" referred to in the title of
the Diamond Sutra is a metaphor
for the power of wisdom that
can destroy anything.
Destroy what?
Destroy our afflictions
and karmic obstructions.
Like a diamond, wisdom can cut off
our karma and afflictions.
Rather than trying to suppress these
burdens like one trying to stunt the
growth of grass with a heavy stone,we have to eradicate the seeds of
our karma and afflictions with
the sharp and clear sword of
Dharma Wisdom.
Only wisdom can free us
from our afflictions
and karmic obstructions,
and only wisdom can transform our minds.


为什么要解脱呢?就是因为你被束缚住了,犹如一个人的手脚被绑起来,是很难过的,当把绳子解开了,那人就自由了。我们的心也是一样的,被烦恼、无明、业障捆绑起来,障碍住,心就不自由了,不自在,不快乐,不健康。所以,只要把沉罩在我们心内当中的那些烦恼、束缚,那些捆绑的绳子,一层又一层,一条又一条,一根又一根,拔除掉、剪断,那我们就解脱了,这些束缚就去掉了。

Why do we seek liberation?
Because we suffer.
We are bound up just like someone
whose feet and hands are tied. When the rope is untied,
we gain bodily freedom.
The same is true with our minds.
When our minds are bound by afflictions,
ignorance and karmic obstructions,
we are neither free nor at ease,
not happy or healthy.
Those layers and layers of afflictions
weigh heavily on our minds;
like numerous ropes they bind us.
If we can cut loose these ties
and pull them out one by one,
we can then remove the bondage
and gain liberation.


佛法就像阳光,佛法就像雨露,佛法就像空气,我们时刻都不能离开。离开,就不容易生活,生活就过得不好,我们的身心就会不愉悦。

The Buddha's teachings are
just like the sunshine,
the rain, the dew and the air,
without which we cannot thrive.
Without the guidance of the Dharma,
our lives will not go well
and our body and mind will suffer.
